The Ifako/Ijaiye community has decried the bail granted to CSP Olusegun Fabunmi, the policeman who allegedly killed Ademola Abe during last year’s fuel subsidy protest.
During a press briefing on Wednesday, the Executive Chairman, Ifako/Ijaiye Local Government Area, Dr. Oloruntoba Oke, said, “You will recall that in January, 2012, the entire citizens of our country, Nigeria, rejected the removal of fuel subsidy.
“On January 9, 2012, a group of youths within Ifako/Ijaiye Council Area took advantage of the work-free protest to engage themselves in a football match on Yaya Abatan Street. Late Ademola Abe, a 26 years old man, was among them.”
Oke said Fabunmi opened fire at the youths who were neither armed nor violent and killed Ademola Abe.”
He said Fabunmi, who was charged, had been granted bail on health grounds.
Oke said, “We consider this inconceivable since he is facing charges of murder and attempted murder.”
He said that as a government organ, police had the responsibility to protect the rights of the citizens.
He urged the government and the police to look into incessant extra-judicial killings rampant in the country as well as unresolved murder cases involving police personnel.
